I think someone posted the "reciepe" ("procedure") for said activity hereabouts long ago, and I refuse to admit that I was in any way involved because a lawsuit would be in order for anyone DUMB enough to attempt said activity...I will note that smoking, not licking, is one of the critical steps in this activity, and given it is consistently compared to "...bad acid trip...10-100 times more intense (is this possible???)". Defn not for the faint hearted...Native American headmen somehow figured it out, and just so you know, here is THE toad that is used in such activities (which again, one last time for the record, I STRONGLY, in the most EXPLICIT terms, do NOT endorse anyone even thinking about looking into this):

While I have no interest in either licking or smoking, it is cool to give a looksie. Is this a shot with the new camera?

looks like the bufos that we had down in miami. They would hang out by our air conditioning units or occasionally get into the garage. One actually figured out how to enter the doggie door to our screened enclosure. The problem was that the dog would chase and occasionally catch them and that would result in a trip to the vet. Actually lots of dogs are killed from licking them, we were told were fortunate that old Drew didn't get sicker than he did. Not really sure why he went back for a second helping.

Ah--what a cutie! Yes, sadly, the domestic types sometimes don't get the message the first time, whereas "native" carnivores "get it" right away...the one you had a run in with was a Marine Toad, which is somewhat related to the one I pictured....Marine Toads are introduced, and a real pest in a number of areas now (like Australia, HI, etc., etc.).

If the dog lets go right away, both parties are okay...but if they chew at all, which of course the toad doesn't want, and neither do YOU, then it goes terribly wrong for al concerned. Just another example of our domestication screwing with a more natural predatory response that would preclude such outcomes...
